I just wanted to catch up on the mainstream stuff right now. I took your advice and just jumped right into AvX and read A LOT last night. Looks like I haven't missed that much. Such fantastic writing all across the board. I'm more of an X-Men fan, but the Marvel universe is so integrated now, that it's hard to avoid these other titles. I thought the tie-ins with Avengers Academy would be stupid, but I really want to read some more of that series now. I've been particularly impressed with X-Men Legacy and Secret Avengers. I know there's already a thread on that storyline now... so I'm just gonna shut up here. Thanks!
